Their core focus, at the moment, is their 3rd Generation CAR-T therapy that can potentially be useful in the treatment of cancer and other life-threatening diseases along with their FLASH-CAR technology and stem cell derived Exosome technology called ACTEX. ACTEX can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions, from neurodegenerative disorders to immune health, orthopedic applications, wound management, and even weight management.
The “QTY Code” Breakthrough Technology
Avalon recently announced a new research study applying artificial intelligence (AI) enhanced protein design “QTY Code” technology. The method is expected to accelerate the development of therapeutic monoclonal antibodies to treat cancer.
The research demonstrates a novel method for quickly predicting the design of so-called “water-loving” or hydrophilic variant structures of the 14 glucose transport membrane proteins in cells, which allows researchers to study the proteins more easily in water. Glucose transport membrane proteins are deregulated in many tumor types and are a potentially important target for cancer therapy.
The “QTY Code” breakthrough technology, developed by Avalon and the laboratory of Dr. Shuguang Zhang, Ph.D. MIT’s Media Lab in Boston, MA, is a protein-design platform that can turn water-insoluble transmembrane receptor proteins into water-soluble proteins, enabling their use in many clinical applications, including drug development.
A team of scientists led by Dr. Zhang applied the QTY code to the 14 glucose transport membrane proteins that transport sugar to cells. They used Google’s AlphaFold2, a DeepMind AI program, which can accurately and quickly predict how proteins fold. Dr. Zhang and his team used the QTY code with the open-source AlphaFold2 to predict the structures of these proteins in both their natural hydrophobic shapes and their QTY-code altered water-soluble shapes.

Avalon Files To Protect “IP”
Recently, Avalon jointly filed 16 patent applications, and co-invented with key strategic partners, including a top-5 U.S. university, a leading education and research center in Europe, as well as a premier multi-national developer of cellular therapies in the field of oncology. Patents were filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), and under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) covering 36 countries.
The new intellectual property covers three core patent families:
Engineering and bio-manufacturing of novel CAR T-cells related to the mRNA-based Flash-CARTM cellular therapy platform. This technology has been applied to Avalon’s AVA-011 CAR-T cell therapy candidate, which is currently at the process development stage to generate cGMP-grade CAR-T cells for upcoming first-in-human clinical trials.
Soluble, antibody-like cytokine/chemokine decoy receptors derived from the QTY protein design, with potential applications including mitigation of the “cytokine storm” associated with CV-19 and cellular immunotherapy delivery, as well as broadening the range of therapeutic targets addressable by CAR T-cell therapies.
Novel S-layer coated emulsome technology (SLET)-derived fusion proteins intended for mucosal vaccine development, which are designed to trigger robust protective immune responses at the predominant sites of pathogen infection. The SLET platform provides a “molecular GPS system” to guide the trafficking and delivery of a payload to a targeted destination in the body.

And right now, multiple potential catalysts could once again fuel a vertical chart move in the near term for ALBT. They are:
No. 1 ALBT Potential Catalyst - A Low Float Could Allow For Explosive Volatility (Daily)
According to the Yahoo Finance website, ALBT has a low float.
The website reports this profile to have approximately 3.23Mn shares in its float.
Why is that important? It's important on one crucial level. Volatility.
Could more positive company news early this year help provide a near term spark?
No. 2 ALBT Potential Catalyst - Multiple Oversold Technicals May Be Signaling HUGE Bounce/Reversal Potential
As of 1:00PM EST Monday, Barchart was reporting this profile to have several oversold leaning technicals.
These technicals could be signaling a healthy reversal could be approaching in the near term.
Here's the definition of a "reversal" from Investopedia:
"A reversal is a change in the price direction of an asset. A reversal can occur to the upside or downside. Following an uptrend, a reversal would be to the downside. Following a downtrend, a reversal would be to the upside. Reversals are based on overall price direction and are not typically based on one or two periods/bars on a chart."
Now, here are some key technicals (as of 1:00PM EST Monday) that could signal ALBT to be leaning oversold and on the verge of a potential reversal.
- 9-Day Relative Strength Index: 30.97%
- 14-Day Relative Strength Index: 34.82%
When these numbers drop down to the 30% range and lower, they can be viewed as being in oversold territory. While in this territory, they can paint the picture of a profile that is undervalued.
- 14-Day Raw Stochastic: 8.56%
- 14-Day Williams %R: 91.44%
As the Raw Stochastic nears the 10% range and lower and the Williams %R nears the 90% range or higher, these technical indicators may also be viewed as oversold and undervalued.
Keep an eye on these technicals closely.

No. 5 ALBT Potential Catalyst - Company's Fusion Gene Map Technology Seen As Major Breakthrough
Avalon GloboCare Announces the Deployment of Breakthrough Fusion Gene Map Technology
Enabling the Development and Commercialization of Companion Diagnostics and Novel Therapeutic Targets for Leukemia Patients
FREEHOLD, N.J., Jan. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avalon GloboCare Corp. (“Avalon” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ALBT), a leading global developer of innovative cell-based technologies and therapeutics and laboratory testing provider, today announced that it has deployed a breakthrough fusion gene map technology to be used for the goal of developing companion diagnostic kits and devices to enhance personalized clinical management of leukemia patients.
In collaboration with the Lu Daopei Institute of Hematology, a fusion gene map database from over 1,000 patients with leukemia was established and the results were previously published in the Blood Cancer Journal. Fusion genes are important genetic abnormalities in leukemia. Using advanced gene sequencing technology, called “Whole Transcriptome Sequencing” (WTS), multiple previously unknown fusion genes were identified which may potentially establish novel diagnostic and therapeutic targets.
“Fusion genes are crucial in the diagnosis and treatment of leukemia. All well-known fusion genes are founder variations and constitute critical causative factors and can serve as important indicators of disease diagnosis,” stated David Jin, M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Avalon GloboCare. “Avalon is applying the bioinformatics from the fusion gene map with the goal of accelerating the development and commercialization of companion diagnostic kits and devices to enhance personalized clinical management of leukemia patients. The first diagnostic prototype is expected to enter clinical study and regulatory filing stage during Q3 of 2023. The fusion gene map technology also provides an unprecedented opp. to identify and validate fusion gene products as potential novel therapeutic targets. Additionally, this gives us an opp. to expand Avalon’s R&D pipeline and intellectual property portfolio.”
